Nowadays, we tend to use our smartphones for relatively functional purposes. They are, after all, essentially a world of information that we can keep in our pockets. While their main use tends to be keeping in touch with others and maintaining a good level of contact with our loved ones, they now have multiple features that can make our day to day lives easier. We have apps to translate words and phrases into different languages, apps to browse and shop a range of stores online, apps to order taxis and food, and even apps to monitor our menstrual cycles. This is all extremely useful and practical. However, it’s also important to remember that our phones can provide us with a source of entertainment when we’re feeling a little bored. So, here are few different things that you might like to try using your phone for when you simply want a little distraction!
Games aren’t entirely new and limited to smartphones. Remember the good old days when you’d spend hours playing Snake or Tetris on your Nokia? However, the good news is that the quality of games on smartphones has significantly increased, and there are now a whole variety of impressive games out there for you to use through your web browser or download apps for. Consider Final Fantasy the new mobile game. This mobile game takes the world’s biggest RPG series and makes it easily accessible on the go. In this game you will play Noctis Lucis Caelum, the brooding hero who needs to take a firm stance against shaking challenges in his homeland.
There are so many quiz apps on the market now that you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing one to have a go with. Perhaps the best are those that allow you to challenge your friends and family members in real time, facing you off against one another through different rounds of challenges. Quizzes are relatively simple to get the gist of and you can pick up all sorts of useful pieces of knowledge or facts as you progress through different levels. Consider Fightlist 2. This gets you and loved ones to create lists on different subjects – the person with the longest list at the end of the round wins!
